Sal Maeskala, Jason Burgh

BerKela Motion Pictures’ Sal Maeskela and Jason Bergh surround Street Dreams director Chris Zam on the red carpet in Hollywood.

Street Dreams premiered to a sold out audience in Hollywood at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on June 8, 2009. It’s written by Rob Dyrdek and Nino Scalia. Directed by Chris Zam. Executive producers are Sal Masekela and Jason Bergh of Berkela Motion Pictures (remember Bra Boys). Street Dreams will be released in theatres in the U.S. on Friday, June 12. In an interview with Transworld Skate’s Blair Alley, Dyrdek explained that although this project will be released to a mainstream audience, it was created by people inside the skate industry. “Skateboarders did it, period. From every last nuance to the fact that this kid [Paul Rodriguez] really 360 flip crooked grinded the f—kin’ handrail.” Dyrdek also added, “It’s the first real skateboard movie. But I also feel like, if you’re a skater, you’re going to enjoy it. You’re going to enjoy all the little things, all the cameos, how funny it’s done with Ryan Dunn’s character—how real it is. As a skater, you’ll be like, ‘Damn, that’s exactly what I went through.'”

Ryan Dunn

Anyone who has seen the previews online already knows that Ryan Dunn brings some “comic relief” to the film.

C.C. Sheffield. Because even a skateboarding movie needs some attractive girls.
